Rodeo athletes experience victory and defeat

Starla Lyon

Lance Creek, WY

Once again local cowboys and cowgirls have cinched up and captured some heavy hitting titles along the rodeo trail. The Caldwell (ID) Night Rodeo was no exception with local favorites such as JJ Elshere, Chad Ferley, Brian Curtis, Jason Miller and Lisa Lockhart making headlines throughout the rodeo world.

Lance Creek, WY steer wrestler Jason Miller tied for first place with Ken Lewis in Caldwell’s short round with a time of 4.1 seconds.

“I haven’t had a real great year,” said Miller. “I’ve just kind of been plugging along with nothing really big happening until Caldwell.”

Despite his humble words, Miller has been “plugging along” in the top 10 most of the season and currently has secured the seventh hole in the world. As with every rodeo athlete traveling down the road this year, the price of fuel has been a major concern.

“Fuel prices have dang sure affected us all,” Miller says. “We’ve been trying to get a six man buddy group going through the PRCA whereas right now they are only allowing a group of four to enter. Six of us have been entering together right now which has been kind of a fiasco. We tried to get a six man group going before the 4th of July but they (PRCA) balked at it and acted like it wasn’t really a big deal. Hopefully they will get that going for next year which will certainly make things nicer for us.”

Caldwell marked the first rodeo in the four event Ariat Playoff Series.
